Introducing Jane-e of Closet Obsessions

Photographed by Charley

Jane-e is a friend of mine and the creator of fashion blog, ClosetObsessions
We spent a mellow Sunday afternoon around her apartment watching The Hills and poking fun at
how absurd the show is while eating the killer tacos and bomb cookies she prepared. Thanks
again for the wonderful day Jane-e!
We wanted to feature her because her style is effortless and edgy. She posts articles of clothing
that won't send you on week long meals of 1,000 recipes for ramon and you can always
count of her to inspire you when you are feeling a lack of creativity in the wardrobe department.

If you want to learn more about Jane-e please visit her blog.

Friday- 5 O'Clock

Easy things for going out with your girls. Flattering clothes, makeup that you don't have to think about, inappropriate accessories and don't forget a pair of sneax for when those damn heels hurt too much.

Ten Things to Steal from Granny's Closet

Please note, when I say "Granny" I'm referring to a combination of my awesome grandma, B (an unknowing fashion icon) and Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies.

And Now, Other Stuff

Not so much links as video clips but what the fuck ever. Always trying to peep cute shit at the start of the weekend. These are all clips from movies where the wardrobe styling is on point. I don't care how many cold sores Divine has, those cat eyes don't quit.


Charley's Show and Tell

Being highly influenced by film and video art, I am introducing just a fraction of the directors/video artists that have
inspired my work. The works I have chosen below are particularly influential to my photography.
I will share more videos in the future as well...

Kenneth Anger

Marcel Duchamp

Guy Bourdin ( Bourdin was really experimenting with the idea of
video editorals back in the 70s which I find fascinating since this
concept has tremendously grown in the fashion industry. A lot of fashion
photographers are venturing into the film medium as a way to further
illustrate their visions, me being one of them. )

Floria Sigismondi ( my BIGGEST inspiration...I have been following her
videos/photography for over a decade now. In fact, her book was the
first photo book I ever purchased. She is one of the top visionaries in 
my opinion. )

Michel Gondry

Warmest Regards,
